When Syracuse's 2013-14 schedule was released, the game that caught everyone's eye was the matchup with Duke on February 1st. After the Orange's 67-57 win over Wake Forest on Wednesday, the team can finally turn their focus to the highly touted game.
It's nice to move on and focus on this game. No disrespect to the Wake Forest's or Virginia Tech's of the world. Even Miami or Boston College. But the Duke game is clearly the most anticipate game in years in Central New York.
Let the hype continue over the next several days as two of college basketball's best square off inside the Carrier Dome.
The headlines write themselves. A record crowd, ESPN College Game Day, two of the best coaches of all time who are also friends, two national championship contenders, etc.
It should be a fun one with an atmosphere that cannot be matched in college basketball.
